Times Witnesses: Women's Voices from the Holocaust
If we had held one minute's silence for each of the six million Jews who were murdered, we would have remained silent for twelve years - Blanche Major
In Time's Witnesses: Women's Voices from the Holocaust, Major and nine other Jewish women testify about their horrific experiences in Auschwitz, Theresienstadt, Bergen-Belsen and other Nazi camps.
This book tells of humiliation, hunger, death and despair, but also of dignity, unity and hope - and an indomitable will to live. Each woman's experience is unique; yet their reflections share a common hope for reconciliation and understanding. They are a testament to the Nazi atrocities and a caution for the future.
Theirs are stories the world must never forget.
Reviews from Amazon.
a very informative and honest review of the horrors these courageous women had to endure, at the same time a compelling read.
Very powerful book about what can happen when leaders foster anger and hate, and the importance of protecting democracy.
